Arnold conveys the characters' befuddlement and terror, without losing his grip on the greater ebb and flow of battle. This is masterfully done.
If you like Cornwell you will like Arnold.
The enigmatic Stryker promises much entertainment.
Arnold writes with such muscular flair the characters stride off the pages.
The author knows the Civil War inside out, he's got to the heart of it, and it's this mix of knowledge and enthusiasm that has ensnared me in his books . . . The Civil War Chronicles is an outstanding series - Marston Moor, for all its bleakness and violence, is the best.
